the debate, your reaction. follow our live coverage on c- span, c-span radio, and c- span.org. >> defense secretary leon panetta today said it was obvious the killing of four americans at a u.s. consulate in libya was a terrorist attack. he also said more attacks on american soldiers by afghan soldiers are likely. the remarks came this afternoon with the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. >> since the general dempsey just returned from the war front, we thought it would be worth making some comments on afghanistan -- since the general did see just returned from the war front -- since general dempsey just returned from the war front. i will invite general dempsey to share his comments as well. last week, we completed the drawdown of 33,000 surge forces that the president ordered to afghanistan in december 2009. as i said in announcing this milestone last week, it is clear that the surge allowed us to turn a very important corner in 2011. it accomplished the primary objectives of reversing the taliban's momentum on the battlefield and dramatically increased the size and capability of th
is -- who answer the answer and where do we find it? but i see things -- i've been with the defense department for 35 years. everything is sigh saturday silent. i'm hoping you will do something about that in the educational system. starting with -- [inaudible] >> yeah. a lot there. both -- a couple of things. ultimately the question is what do we value? what skills are we trying to teach? .. >> it is clearly not the norm. it is clearly more the exception. i always get asked, what's the appropriate federal role. i think about that every day, what's our role, the state role, the local role. one of the best uses of time and resources, i think, is for us to shine a spotlight on best practices to help with more resources, with more flexibility, whatever it might be. so wherever we're seeing those skill sets being taught, shining a spotlight, convening groups of teachers and principals to talk about those things, we think, are really, really important. so we can help to try and build that culture. long way to go. the other thing that's emerging that i'm really interested in that's related
in northern virginia, technology and defense jobs, and using them as pawns to a demand higher taxes or a budget deal. now, these are tough times, but out of adversity, we can create a more confident, caring, and prosperous america, and that is a positive agenda i will forward to discussing today, and the ida is what is best for the virginia businesses. >> governors, thanks to both of you. this is a high-profile senate race for the nation, certainly very important for the commonwealth, and it is also occurring in the shadow of the presidential debate, so i want to ask you about 47% we heard about this week. governor romney in summer marks at a fundraiser taped earlier this year talked about how there is some 47% of the people that do not pay federal income tax. he said that he believes they are -- that they feel they are victims, that the government needs to take care of them, and that they are entitled to housing, you name it. part of that 47 percent said. what would you do about that? do you think that should change? and what do you think, generally, about too many virginians, too
defense attorney, stood on a downtown los angeles sidewalk and he watched his chief investigator seized by the police caught in the act of bribing a juror. a few weeks later, darrow was indicted on two counts of bribery, and burt franklin, the investigator, agreed to testify against them. he swore that darrow had ordered him to pay $4000 to jurors who agreed to vote not guilty. and darrow was at that time at the height of the same one of america's foremost trial lawyers, political leaders and populist champions, and his careened staggered off track there in southern california. caught up by shame he left his wife one reunite for the apartment of his mistress. with a revolver in one pocket and a whiskey barrel -- whiskey bottle in the other, he sat down and vowed to kill them so. she brought out two glasses. they sat at a wooden table underneath one of those swinging bare lightbulbs. and fortunately for us she talked him out of it. he went on to create an american architect, lawyer for the little guy, advocate for the common folk. poking his thumbs, regarding the jury from beneath that c
programs for defense companies, transportation companies. they get federal dollars so they can do these programs. these programs go away january 1st pairs of these companies including defense, health care, transport will have to notify employees by november, the end of october to notify employees their jobs are cut. so in addition to the largest tax increase were going to see since world war ii, were also going to see a host of layoffs at year-end, all as a result of ignoring the fiscal class, which is why there is so much talk about it. so you know, i do think we are walking on shaky ground and unfortunately the president has been unable to provide the leadership required to get these two groups together, the right and the left. you know, part of the job of the commander-in-chief has to be to compromise and bring these two groups together. for congress to say we're going on vacation for five weeks and then come back and say we go away again until after the election, with nothing done about the fiscal class is truly irresponsible. and the fact that the leadership -- there is no le

these political games for the armed services. we need to have a strong economy and national defense. but the last thing we need to be doing is having these devastating cuts to our military readiness and that's what has to happen is stop these devastating cuts, come up with the cuts that have the right priority and make sure the men and women protecting our safety and our freedoms here have the best armments, the best equipment and making sure we get those good paying jobs and technology and defense here in virginia and not use then am a pon to raise taxes. >> no one's talking about using the military or veterans as pons, i mean, i haven't heard that stated except george kind of throw in that charge at me and that's the kind of charge that you ought to be more careful about. i take second to no one in appreciating the service of our folks in active service and in our military i was governor in the middle o two wars. our virginia guards people, 1,500 of them deployed. i went to the deployments and the wakes in afghanistan and i celebrate the fact that all units are home. we have to get to a resolve
as little as $17,000 a year will then will be put in jeopardy, the hundreds of thousands of defense and technology jobs, and in my view, the men and women in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to raise taxes on job creating small businesses. >> when you eliminate deductions, would you do that for everyone or high income earners? >> first, i'll point out the last rhetoric about taking veterans hostage on economic issues. that's exactly the kind of name calling we've got too much of in washington. we can debate policies, but that's the name calling we've seen too much in washington, and what's wrong with washington is not going to be fixed by more of that. now, back to the issue. george talked about his tax proposal. he was a u.s. senator. he was a senator for six years. during his time in the senate, his fiscal policies turned masses surpluses into massive deficits. the federal deficit went up $16,000 every second george allen was the united states senator. voted to raise the debt ceiling four times, voted to raise his own salary four times. now he's
into custody for misdemeanor assault. they wrote this e-mail in his defense. things got pretty heated and i got in his face and said some pretty mean things including calling him a bully and a coward. at that point he punched me in the face and i tried to hit him back. they said an off duty police officer saw moore punch him. he did not see him attack moore. that's why moore was taken into custody. while this incident is being investigated, richmond police are also investigating what they call improper touching of a female which they say is also a misdemeanor assault that occurred on september 20th. he denies doing anything of the sort. >> because there is no charges pressed against me. there was conversation, but there was no charges. >> david moore did not return our calls for further comment. he fears that thursday's violence is a sign of things to come. the naacp and other community organizations will be at tuesday's city council meeting to voice their displeasure at what happened and support. in the newsroom, i'm thomas roman. >> thank you, thomas. >>> the family of an 18-year-old man kill
of the joint chiefs of staff and the defense secretary finally statedding the obvious. >> it was a terrorist attack. as we determined details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear there were terrorists who planned that attack. that's when i came to that conclusion. >> day after or was -- >> took a while to really get some of the feedback from what exactly happened at that location. >> there was a thread of intelligence reporting that groups in the environment in western, correction, eastern libya, were seeking to coalesce but there wasn't anything specific. bill: well, peter doocy is live in washington drilling down on the specifics. peter, if the administration knew it was terrorist attack in 24 hours, why did they not just say that? >> reporter: we heard from administration officials there is ongoing investigation and more details will come out after it wraps up. we learned yesterday not one fbi agent has stepped foot in fwauz gauze in the 17 days since the attack because things are too dangerous. u.s. officials internally labeled the deadly raid on t
to visit the actual scene of the crime due to security concerns. secretary of defense leon panetta yesterday said there was no doubt terrorists were responsible. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack. and that's when i came to that conclusion as, again, as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is on going. >> the romney campaign ramped up its criticism of the president's response to those attacks claiming the administration overstated the influence of an anti-islam youtube film in order to draw folk us away from security short falls. and the man behind the anti-islam film which sparked protests throughout the muslim world is under arrest this morning in california. 55-year-old is arrested. he is accused of violating his probation. as part of a probation deal, he was barred from using computers on the internet without special permission. a term he is now suspected of breaking. a federal judge denied him bail c
obama has called the concerns over iran noise, quote/unquote, and that secretary of defense leon panetta has repeatedly and emphatically outlined the dangers of military action against iran. and joe biden as he said has made fun of the whole thing. it doesn't sound like an open and shut commitment that the u.s. would use military option, general clark. what's your take? >> i think it's an open and shut commitment. i think the president said he'll do whatever it takes. i think he can do it. we know what the military option is. it's been talked about many times. you've seen it on display in iraq and afghanistan. we used a military option in kosovo when i was the commander, the iranians should be under no doubt that this option can be used. it will be effective and it will result in the destructure of the industrial potential and military potential of iran. the question is what's the best way to maneuver the iranians so you don't have to do that. because no one wants to use at least on this side in this government wants to use military force if you don't have to. always innocent people get
. it is not a good feeling. the defense minister says that when it comes to military spending, the iron dome defense system, remember this is not the first time that egyptians ransacked an embassy. they ransacked the israeli embassy eight months ago. this is the second time in one year that in egypt embassy is fair game. the prime minister called obama immediately and obama got on of holland -- the phone and said, do something about this. protect these people. she will routinely say that this is the best president in american history in terms of support for israel. in terms of military spending, we have never got more support. but if you ask people on the street, they have a very different reading of the feelings of obama to israel. >> i had taken the position up until recently that israel should not be an issue in the race because the parties are both supportive of israel. it should relate to the domestic issues where there is clear cleavage between the two. that has been my position. i don't think that anyone can rightly say that president obama is the best president. i think reagan was. i think s
, and reintegrate the revolutionaries in the defense and interior ministries, as well as other state institutions. before the first time since independence, we have political parties in the political arena there is freedom of expression in the press. there is unconditional freedom to demonstrate, the freedom of association, freedom to set up several institutions, unions as well as political and social, intellectual organizations without any limitations. this has led to a free dialogue and participation by all peoples in all parts of the world. mr. president, the time of the previous regime for more than four decades saw fragrant -- flagrant violations of human rights, torture, detention without trial, expeditionary killing, humiliation of citizens, mistreatment. the when the revolution erupted on 17 february through peaceful demonstrations, the previous regime faced them down with bullets and oppression in a grave violation of international humanitarian law and human rights law. hence the human rights council suspended libya's membership in said council. and set up an international fact-finding c

and loose with the truth when makes claims in defense of his own record and making allegations about mitt romney, his record and the way he has run his campaign. bill: give me an example. what has he said in a battle ground state or what as he said on a tv ad that has been disapproved? >> he made a claim that got four pinnochios from "the washington post" yesterday that 90% of the debt was run up under his predecessor. the david letterman interview that president obama gave last week on the debt and deficits was a veritable panoply of things that were at least misleading, and often just flat-out untrue. i think the president didn't get called on it. there were many more misleading statements in the 10 minute interview that president obama gave david letterman than anything in paul ryan's speech which as we saw led to the this explosion of fact-checking. bill: don't all politicians kind of take the truth and bend it a little bit, stretch it out for their own advantage? >> yes. that is an understatement. they do it all the time. everybody on all sides does it. and i think, you know, to a ce

a defensive stance or at least those have been the winning sectors in a day when the overall tone to the market has been weaker because of concerns about the euro -- because of europe. also concerns about some sectors in the u.s., specifically the home builders. august new home sales were weaker than expected. as a result the u.s. home building index having one of its worst days in a couple of months putting pressure on home builders which have been generally a positive sector over the last year again. let's look at a couple of dow movers as the dow holds onto the two-point gain. the nasdaq and s&p remain weaker. bank of america, american express, financials are under pressure. disney, cisco and travellers. tech is a standout to the down side today. one of the reasons we see the tech sector weaker is because of circuit. also transports in a shift because of weakness in oil outperforming the dow industrials. back to techs. jabil circuit came out with weak results. stock down over 9%. as we approach the close of september, typically a volatile month for the markets. this time no exc

as the defense and its face it popular at the beginning like the health care reform act and so long, the stimulus looked upon unfavorably by a lot of voters because even though many have felt the economy come back from cataclysmic tester it didn't exactly turn into a picture of health and voters tend to be unforgiving on things like that. what's going on? the first factor is the economy. it's not great now, but it's better than it used to be and i think we are beginning to get the sense that voters are getting credit for how much things have improved relative to a disastrous economic situation in the first year. voters can remember a few years back there some political scientist who maintained they can't remember what they had for breakfast and basically they just voted what's happening. i think we see in fact there is an influence of where it went before and how people see the current incumbent in that light so as we are seeing the economy pick up a bit with consumer confidence gain strength that this is helping obama take the edge of the economic strategy to say obama is the president come is a
the sacrifices for us. my concern when it comes to defense is we're headed to a fiscal cliff. we're looking at sequestration. we're looking at $500 billion in cuts to the department of defense. with sequestration, if that happens, that is another $500 billion. we're looking at the smallest army since 1950, the smallest air force ever. that cannot happen. we need to make a commitment to our military. when you have the director of the department of defense, the secretary, saying this is a bullet to the head, this is devastating, he will take whatever he can get. we're at a fiscal cliff, and these cuts to our defense are at the forefront of it. >> your balanced budget amendment will take the sequester and multiply it by at least seven. the cuts that would be imposed -- hearing slogans in support of the veterans, but the amendment will not support it. neither presidential candidate -- 80% have never served in the military, and when it comes to the time when they come home, it matters. >> i thank you for your service to our country. but i believe everyone would make a sound decision, and it woul
